Zoloft Gives A False Positive Drug Test For Benzos?
Posted 18 March 2011 - 12:33 PM
Now, I'm supposed to take a urine drug test for my job in two days, and I've just read all over the web that Zoloft gives a false positive test for benzodiazepines.
I'm wondering: if I don't take Zoloft for two days prior to the test, will it show up on the drug test (as benzos)?

I don't know enough about the tests to know how to answer your question. Zoloft is definitely not a benzo so I wonder if maybe the info on the internet isn't quite correct. Sometimes such information on the internet is a bit exaggerated or not entirely accurate.
Wishing you the best,

I took the drug test, and I TESTED POSITIVE FOR BENZODIAZEPINES. That's right.
Last time I took a Valium to help me to go to sleep was more than two years ago. So, considering the information that's all over the web, and the fact that the only thing I'm taking is Zoloft, I'm pretty much sure that Zoloft is what caused a false positive test.
Luckily, the guys at work are understanding, and I managed to avoid any consequences by telling them that I had a Valium a couple of nights prior, to help me go to sleep. I don't feel that me taking ADs is anybody's business, so I didn't tell them. Anyway, they were much more interested in illegal street drugs.
Anybody taking sertraline should know that it can give a false positive drug test for benzodiazepines. It did for me.
